The author is well qualified to write such a textbook as this. The fundamentals of neuropathology are adequately covered. The material is well organized and concisely presented with unusual clarity. The clinical and anatomic manifestations of various diseases and their clinicopathologic correlation are recorded so as to be easily understood.
A clinical supplement in which the numerous neurologic syndromes are briefly defined should be of considerable value to the medical student and the practicing physician. The technical supplement should prove useful to those engaged in preparing microscopic sections. The illustrations are in general good and well selected. The table of contents and complete subject index add greatly to the value of the book for reference.
This volume is intended especially for medical students, for whom it should ultimately be recognized as an excellent textbook. It should also be valuable and popular among pathologists and practicing physicians.
